OMG, I laughed so hard, I cried!

Okay, okay, okay....pass the sugar and cream please...okay?  Okay?


Is it possible to have too much coffee?  Isn't that an oxymoron?

Great post, Mirela.  Made me laugh.  True story: My husband, son and I went to Washington state to visit my father and his family for Thanksgiving a few years ago.  We had to go to Pike's Place in Seattle just so I could take a photo of my husband outside of the very first Starbucks.  We even had to buy a coffee mug that is only sold in that particular store so he could brag to his co-workers that he was there.  He's the coffee drinker.  I've never developed a taste for the stuff.  You have to put too much crap in it to make it taste any good.  I do love the smell, though.

Michael:  I am so addicted!  This just spoke to me.  A few years ago I cut down to about 3/4 of a pot per day.  I hate to admit to my previous daily dosage...

Heather:  Wow!  I would love to do that!  I'm with your husband on this one: I love Starbucks and all others catering to my Java love and addiction.

Hey, I'm from Seattle, I resemble those remarks.

Mirela:  If I do not get my coffee first thing in the morning... I will still be sitting there waiting for it by the time noon rolls around.  End of story.

Need my coffee in the morning; three cups, them I'm done for the day.

Mirela, This is your brain on caffeine! I had to give up the java - I liked it better than it liked me.

Posted by Kathryn Gorham, Emerald Isle NC Crystal Coast (Green Key Realty) almost 11 years ago

Mirela, LOL, pretty funny. I see some people I know in there! I had to cut back to 2 cups a day. First one is the most special and God help anyone who interrupts the process. I might even post about it. I have a vintage espresso maker, you have to pump the handle to press the water through the grinds. I have the most amazing cup of cappuchino ever. Every day. Second cup is from the coffee shop down the street, not Starbucks. I am not a Starbucks junkie.

Hubby, on the other hand, drinks enough coffee and tea to shoot to the moon. He has been known to fry the beans with a bit of garlic, grind them and make some kicker Turkish Coffee. We have all sorts of coffee makers in this house. And tea? Well, I am sure you know Russians drink tea before they talk, he takes his tea very seriously too. I probably have about 30 teapots and I sneak them out of the house as I can!

Okay, I am glad I quit drinking coffee a week ago after reading this. I do love the smell of fresh ground coffee

Mirela, I love....your eyes stay open when you sneeze....that is a truckload full of coffee!!

Posted by Caren Wallace, Portland Caren Real Estate (Premier Property Group LLC) almost 11 years ago

Hi Mirela,

Those are hilarious! LOL.  I wonder if you really can keep your eyes open when you sneeze!

Ha ha, I'm LOL.


When someone asks 'how are you' you say, 'good to the last drop'


That has to be my favorite. Thanks for the laugh!

Mirela...The list was very funny for the first few sentences, but it was killing my coffee buzz so I skipped to the end.

Mirela, the title caught my attention.  Yes I drink a lot of coffee...morning...noon...night, I think it keeps me normal...well ok, it's my perception of normal...where was I?  Oh yes, normal...Starbucks is not normal...don't like it never have!  Give me Folgers unleaded...after all it's mountain grown or good to the last drop...I don't know...I don't care...I'm off for a coffee break...
